    Shining Knight continues to be another Grant Morrison masterpiece of storytelling. Simone Bianchi with Nathan Eyring's unique color palette draws the reader into the pages with gallery-quality comic art that honors without mimicking the work of past masters such as Frank Frazetta.

    In spots I find Simone Bianchi's art to be a little soft, and there are moments in the issue where there's an abrupt shifting with the visuals that left me a little confused (e.g. the panels where Justin's grip on the hand gun is suddenly corrected, or his abrupt transition from the roof to the alley). However, there are also moments in this issue where the art is absolutely stunning, as there's a great reveal shot when the gangster pays a visit to his stables to get his first look at Vanguard, and there's a wonderful impact shot where we see what is attacking the compound. However, where the art really shines is during the action sequences as Justin's escape from the police is a wonderful looking sequence, as is the fight scene later in the issue as Justin lashes out against his attackers in the alley. The highlight image of the issue though would have to be the one-page shot of Justin as he makes his pledge to combat evil in this new setting, as that's a poster worthy shot of the Read Full Review
